Organisational Review consultation

If you’re a member, we’d like to ask for your views on a series of changes we’re proposing to the way Social Work Scotland governs itself and how membership is structured. The aim is to make clearer the link between our purpose and membership, simplify our membership structure and clarify and enhance the ‘offer’ to members. You’ll see more information about this in the materials from our AGM, and you can respond to the consultation here.

If you’ve got any questions about our consultation, you can contact us here.

The Executive Committee provides the leadership of Social Work Scotland. This committee oversees all the work of the other committees and groups as well as the staff team. It is our ultimate decision making body. The Executive is a group of around 30 individual appointed from the membership.

  • Oversees the business plan, ensuring links to key priorities.
  • Agrees priorities and the action required to meet them.
  • Will make decisions on behalf of the organisation.
